Yellowstone Film Ranch is located in the heart of Paradise Valley, Montana. Our mission is to be the first and best point of contact for Montana’s burgeoning film industry. Combining the value of a full-service production studio and the state’s top western town with industry-leading capabilities in production planning, location services, and maximizing the value of Montana’s tax credits and other production incentives.
Our western backlot is styled after a late 1800s gold rush town that uses five fully functional interior/exterior sets with some support buildings and facades to create the look of 28 unique structures set amongst rolling hills, highlighted by the dramatic backdrop of Emigrant Peak. From studio pictures, to independents, to television series and commercial shoots, the western town is available for many types of shoots. Four to five star lodging for cast and crew with multiple high end dining and catering options is available within five minutes from the ranch.
Our experienced staff at Yellowstone Film Ranch in Pray, Montana understands the needs and requirements of production and location services. We work tirelessly to procure the perfect locations and realize even the most last minute requests for our clients.
